2012 Honda Accord Coupe

Honda will show off its 2013 Accord Coupe concept in January at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Honda says in a press release the concept car “will convey the dynamic and aggressive profile of the ninth-generation 2013 Honda Accord set to go on sale in the fall of 2012.”

The 2013 Accord Coupe isn’t the only car from Honda to debut in Detroit next month. We reported Monday that Honda will also unveil three new Acura vehicles, including a new sports sedan, a redesigned RDX crossover and an all-new supercar based on the NSX.

“The next-generation Accord’s launch will be critical for Honda as it struggles to overcome recent product foibles and an onslaught of competitive new models from rivals in segments for which Honda traditionally has enjoyed top positioning,” Edmunds AutoObserver reports.

The concept version of the 2013 Honda Accord Coupe will be a preview of what the 2013 Accord sedan will look like, and is expected to look very similar to the final production version, Kicking Tires reports.

Honda hasn’t released specs or pricing information on the 2013 Accord yet, but Inside Line says that the 2013 Accord sedan “is expected to debut a new plug-in hybrid system from Honda.”
